Default graphics cards in dell dimension 3000

the dell dimension 3000 does have any AGO slots, but just 3 available PCI slots, does anyone know of any good graphics cards that are compatible to PCI slots?

PCI slots cripple graphics cards as their speed is nothing compaired to AGP's. The last good PCI video card was the Voodoo3 which actually scored higher in some tests than the AGP version...

I've seen many newer PCI video cards, but I'm not sure which of them would be worth using....

yeah, if you need/want a good video card an AGP mother board is a must. Either that or a PCI-E.

I would have thought a Dell Dimension has an AGP Slot?

Unless you have PCI Express in it; which you'll have to ask Dell about or look on the box then you'll probably have to find yourself a Voodoo Type Card or just some old Card on eBay.
